    “Sweet little cottage, however very cramped for 3 adults and a baby.”

    A travel cot was supplied but there was nowhere to put it so the baby had to sleep in the bed. We requested a high chair but we couldn’t find it anywhere. The photos make the cottage look much bigger than it actually is. It should be made clear that there’s no room for luggage in the bedroom so to pack light. Otherwise great location to be used as a base for exploring the Cotswold.

    Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed the wonderful location of our cottage in the Cotswolds. We are very sorry to hear that Housekeeping didn’t leave the high chair out for you on this occasion, however, in the welcome folder you will find the information showing where it is stored due to the limited space. The travel cot provided does fit at the end of the king size bed, we apologise that on this occasion this was not placed there or the position communicated to you. This is an old cottage as can be seen on the photos along with the description which clearly shows that the bedrooms are located in the eaves indicating limited space. However, there is hanging space on both bedroom doors, also a large chest of drawers available for your belongings. We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

Note: The neighbouring cottages have a right of way through the garden but there is a picket fence enclosing the cottage garden; this is on the other side of the shared path and gives extra peace of mind particularly for guests with children or dogs.

Note: For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Note: The property has two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility.
